Patient

Q: 24 year old female with little to no energy. Always yawning with very low interest in daily activities. When it comes to laying down to go to bed it can take up to 2 hours to fall asleep due to thinking too much about daily activities that weren't finished...

Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.

Usually such generalized body pains, are due to anxiety or fibromyalgia. However to state that we should first of all rule out the following like Anemia, Calcium and Vitamin D deficiency.
I would advise you to get following tests done:
1. Fasting Blood Sugar
2. Thyroid Profile
3. Hemogram
4. Serum Calcium and Vitamin D levels.
If any issues are found in your reports you would be treated accordingly. Otherwise your Doctor will treat you with SSRI's like Fluoxetine, Escitalopram.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
